7th IES Symposium

7th IES Symposium
June 21- 25, 2011 Quebec City

The purpose of the biennial symposium is to provide a venue for scientists and clinician-investigators interested in eosinophils to meet, exchange information and develop collaborations to advance research in the fields of eosinophil biology and the pathogenesis of eosinophil-associated allergic and other diseases. The symposium showcases new research findings related to the production of eosinophils, their trafficking, their effector functions, the use of animal models to explore the importance and role of the eosinophil in health and disease, translational studies of animal model findings into patient-oriented research, and the development of new therapies of eosinophil-associated diseases.

Submitted abstracts were presented in poster discussion sessions, and some were selected for oral presentations and incorporated into the general meeting in various sessions.
